Gateway options

About this task

Gateway options are set to correspond exactly to the values used when installing the SAP Stand-Alone Gateway.

To set gateway options:

Procedure

  1. Enter transaction /nsm59 in the command field.

    The Display and maintain RFC destinations window opens.

  2. Expand TCP/IP connections and double-click the applicable TCP/IP connection.

    The RFC Destination window opens.

  3. Click the Technical settings tab. Enter the information as defined in the table.
    Note:

    The values for Gateway host and Gateway service can be symbolic names. However, specifying the IP address and service number can improve performance and reduce errors.

    Table 1. Gateway options
    Field Enter
    Gateway host Enter the name of your gateway host or the IP address of your gateway host. (In this example, it is 192.168.1.229.)

    The value that you enter in Gateway host must match the value that you specify when using the Gateway Host (-G) adapter command for any SAP R/3 source.

    Gateway service Enter the name of your gateway service. Gateway service is the service name created during the installation of the SAP Stand-Alone Gateway software. The default is sapgw00. Alternatively, you can use the port address instead of the gateway service name (In this example, the value is 3300.)

    The value that you enter in Gateway service (-X) must match the value that you specify when using the Gateway Service adapter command for any SAP R/3 source.

    When migrating to SAP JCo 3, in order to use the JALE, you must perform the following when using SAP Gateway Service:

    If using SAP Gateway Service name sapgwXX, or sapmsXXX, a lookup in the etc/services is required: -x sapgw00. As an example, if you are using a Windows platform, you must modify the services file located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc. In this case, sapgwXX must be added to the services file, along with port number and protocol type:sapgw00 3300/tcp #sap gateway for sapserver1.company.com

    Note: The use of port numbers instead of symbolic service names prevents the lookup.
